better to just buy some inner tubes...

once u get good at changing tires you can change it pretty fast..
i can easily change my tube in under 10 minutes...

Yeah, I know, its just that I do a lot off road, and it sucks to get stuck 10 miles away from home. Besides my inner tubes were $12 a piece

i do downhill mountain biking...my tubes are about 3 dollars.....those tubes that are advertised as "extra thick" are actually stupid because a normal innertube has the same pop rate as those thick ones....

My tires are 2.10 and most of those only stretch to 1.75 at the most. The thick ones help against sharp thorns and stuff like that

from my experience, if the thorn penetrates the tire, its going through the tube too, no matter what tube you got...but thats just me.....i got 2.4s i think...
